Who Can Wear The abcgoodefg® Dog Raincoat?
This dog raincoat can be used by any dog, in the sense that, it doesn’t affect any breed negatively and doesn’t only work for certain body structures, only sizes.
Whatever type of dog you have, he can use this dog raincoat, as long as there is a size available that fits him properly.
And the available sizes are:
- 3 XL.
- 4 XL.
- 5 XL.
- 6 XL.
- 7 XL.
From these sizes available, you can immediately tell that this is really just for big dogs.
So, if you have a large dog, to check what size exactly would fit him, you need to measure him first and compare what you get with the company’s sizing chart.
Below is the sizing chart as provided by the company.
|3XL||40 centimeters /15.7 inches||45 centimeters /17.7 inches||58 centimeters /22.8 inches|
|4XL||46 centimeters /18.1 inches||50 centimters /19.7 inches||64 centimeters /25.2 inches|
|5XL||52 centimeters /20.5 inches||55 centimeters /21.6 inches||70 centimeters /27.6 inches|
|6XL||58 centimeters /22.8 inches||60 centimters /23.6 inches||76 centimeters /30.0 inches|
|7XL||62 centimeters /24.4 inches||65 centimeters /25.6 inches||82 centimeters /32.3 inches|
If your pooch is in between sizes, we advise that you order a size up.
A slightly bigger coat is always better than a really tight, undersized, coat.
If there’s no size here for your pooch, scroll down to our “alternative options” section in this article.
There, you would find other dog raincoats, hopefully, you find one that will fit your pooch.
Features Of The abcgoodefg® Dog Raincoat
This dog raincoat is made with polyester, a popular dog raincoat material. This is no surprise because of the characteristics that the material, polyester, exhibits.
The first, and probably most important characteristic is its water-resistance.
However, we must point out that polyester is not waterproof. Water will be able to penetrate eventually.
But the point where water can penetrate polyester is far forward from the point where keeping your pooch under the rain becomes a health risk.
What we mean is that leaving your pooch for too long under the rain is a health risk, with polyester on or not.
Polyester is a very lightweight material and it does not provide any sort of warmth or insulation.
Basically, this dog raincoat is only rainproof. It is not windproof, neither is it “cold-proof” if there is anything like that.
You can only use this when it rains and it’s still pretty warm. If when it rains in your environment, it gets really cold (we’re talking, sub zero temperatures), then you would also need a dog sweater.
This is because, this dog raincoat won’t provide your dog any warmth that he needs.
This dog raincoat is available in three different colors; blue, red, and yellow.
These three colors are both beautiful and functional.
And by “functional” we mean that they are easy to see, even in the dark.
And this is very important because you’ll be using this dog raincoat when it’s raining, and when it’s raining, it’s usually dark.
When it gets dark like that, you need something that would enable you see your pup better. That way, you would be able to keep him safe and far away from danger.
Also, we have to appreciate the manufacturers of this dog raincoat for adding reflective stripes.
Unlike many other dog raincoats that have just one, this dog raincoat comes with double lines. These lines are across the waist, arms and hoodie of this dog raincoat.
Pros Of The abcgoodefg® Dog Raincoat
1. Jumpsuit Design
This dog raincoat is designed to resemble a jumpsuit; it has four sleeves, one for each leg.
Also, it comes with a cloth over your dog’s chest and underbelly, leaving space only for his “pee pee”.
This design ensures that all the parts of your dog that can be covered are covered.
Many times, dog raincoats just cover the back and the underbelly is completely open.
This, however, is totally covered. Which means that your dog body is safe from puddle splashes.
2. Leash Access Hole
This dog raincoat comes with a leash access hole which gives you the ability to walk your dog with a leash while he’s putting on the raincoat.
Without this hole, you won’t be able to use a leash with your dog and that is not advisable.
What makes this hole even better is that it has a flap cover. Once you’ve inserted the leash properly, you can simply close this flap.
You don’t even need to close, gravity will do its job.
Once it’s covered rain droplets won’t be able to sneak in through the tiny hole to touch your dog.
Cons Of The abcgoodefg® Dog Raincoat
The hoodie on this dog raincoat just doesn’t stay on.
This is quite disgraceful because people are usually excited when they find out that this dog raincoat comes with a hoodie. Only for them to realize upon delivery that the hoodie is just for show, what a sham!
We really think that the manufacturers could’ve done better with this hoodie.
Alternative Options To The abcgoodefg® Dog Raincoat
Nacoco Large Dog Raincoat
If you don’t like this jumpsuit design, which to be honest, would be weird, you can get this regular poncho.
However, if you have a small dog, you will also have to skip this as it’s also for big dogs only.
But the next one is for you.
Speedy Pet Dog Puppy Raincoat
Just like we promised, this is a dog raincoat that’s for small dogs. If you have a small dog or a big dog puppy, get in here!
It comes as a little cute raincoat with beautiful plaid designs.
It also comes with a hoodie so that’s covered. The only problem here is that it’s not very visible.

What Do People Think?
People think that this dog raincoat is pretty good. It covers your pup really well and is a nice, bright, visible color.
The only problem people had with this dog raincoat was the hoodie. It removed too easily and never really stayed on.
What Do We Think?
We think that this dog raincoat is pretty dope, except that the hoodie is pretty useless. If you don’t need the hoodie, this dog raincoat is good.
